A Message from the 96K-ROCK Family:

 Brian will always be remembered for his chaotic performances on the “Stan and Haney” and “Joe and Stan” Shows. While there seemed to be on air antagonism, there was a warm friendship between Brian and all the on air talents at K-ROCK. He was just a sweet, talented, engaging man. Brian recently moved from his adopted home of Fort Myers Beach and relocated to Lake Placid, but he’ll always be considered a part of the Southwest Florida musical community.
Cheers Brian!
